    I enjoyed the original show, but this reboot feels nothing like it.

    The writing is lazy, like final season of game of thrones lazy. The group dynamic feels forced. Gabrielle's lesbian feelings feels very forced and cringy. Sure, its easier to cover certain topics that were a no-go in the 90s, but was this really the best way to that? In the very very first episode just throw it out

    Obviously the show also suffers from a missing Luke Perry, one of the more charismatic actors of the original show.

    After watching the second episode I started the wonder if I wouldn't be better of watching Sharknado again, which is not a good thing.

    This show reminds us how badly the real thing has dated, especially it's stars. They all peaked professionally in their Beverly Hills days. Sadly even the bad make up can't hide that they need new faces(from Game of Thrones) to be attracted to a younger audience.

    A surprising amount of fun. ... The result is just smart enough to feel clever, just silly enough to feel relaxing, a guilty pleasure by design.

    The show isn’t great, exactly. But it’s also a bit smarter than we might have expected. In the early going at least, “BH90210” is campy, but self-aware.

    The end result is a mostly fun but sometimes uneven venture into territory in which not all of the surviving headliners are creatively comfortable. Making things more complicated, all of the stars are executive producers on the series so the breadth of relatable vulnerability is limited.
